Horrendous problems with the People's Network. (Dog bites man)
Today's problems are caused by the internet security software which is generating error messages on the public terminals at a rate of two or three a minute. Each dialogue box you close generates at least two more in their stead. Eventually it gets so bad that the sheer volume of dialogue boxes crashes the network connection and the terminal fails.
Only in Helminthdale could an internet security system generate its own denial of service attack.
